Some Interesting Events Coming to Waco
The Chisholm Trail Festival. Oct. 22-24
The McLennan County Historical Commission is staging this re-enactment of the trail drives that crossed the Brazos in the 1870′s.
Back in 1999 when Waco was 150 years old Bill Johnson organized a simulated trail ride using real Longhorns. They are going to do it again. And it has to be free since it will be around the Suspension bridge.
Markers are going up along the trail in Kansas and eventually all along the trail. Over the years millions of longhorns were driven front south Texas, through Waco and onto Kansas to the railroads. If you want to help call Hal Pledger, 254 666-3431.
Baylor Homecoming will be this same weekend, but with more hotel rooms available no one thinks there will be problems getting one. This will be Ken Star’s coming out weekend. He is Baylor’s new president. Baylor escaped losing out in the Big 12, so fans should award Baylor by showing up for the games.
Waco Cultural Arts Festival.
Doreen Plott really puts on a spectacle on the river.
A host of artists will be displaying their latest. There will be entertainment at every turn and plenty of food and drink vendors. If you want to help call 254-772-7637 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To really learn more go to: www.wacoartsfest.org.
